But I have a question. With those gorgeous girls around, where are the guys? I can't believe they're inside, working on the cars! Real conscientious, eh? (Did I spell that rite?)

I just haven't found some inexpensive figures...I got 3 "Spice Girls" on a discount shelf for I think $2. I am always looking for people about the right scale for 1/24-1/25 in the toy departments! The guys are on a pizza run...the girls work on the cars!!
Thanks for the comments. I am always looking for bits and pieces to put in the dio!

Just a few miles from me is a drive-in aptly named "Skyview" and my racing number is 77 so I have to say that old modified is probably the coolest on the lot to me.

My initials "TT" when signing them look kind of like a "77", and I actually got the name of a long gone local drive in wrong when I lettered that!! I'm glad it exists somewhere!! I could have sworn it was Skyview... It was actually called Auto Sky Drive In and it closed in 1981, and a housing development was built in it's place.

How do you make the outer walls look stained / aged?
Posted 22 February 2011 - 12:09 PM
The staining and aging of the outer walls was done using different washes, from some diluted flat tan, green, brown, rust and black to the sludge at the bottom of my paint brush rinse jar!! The walls are printed paper glued over styrene sheet, so I had to watch how wet I got it, so it didn't run or wrinkle too much.

Here's what I used along with brass tube and scrap plastic bits:
Both in place
Now I just need to get a battery case and a micro switch and figure out where to put them!

I'm liking the "Never Ending Project" aspect of it. I've got a lot of ideas so this will slowly evolve over several years, much like a real business/building.
